Dear P & T Community,
we have all watched the pandemic of Covid-19 unfold and the incremental measures taken by regions and states to contain the spread as much and as long as possible. In order to do our part and in accordance with local authorities’ directives we are temporarily closing our P & T stores, effective Wednesday, March 18. While we hoped to stay open in order to be a place of positivity, stability and good health to you, we simply must bow to the current situation and take the necessary measures. Our online shop remains open of course and our staff are committed to delivering good tea to your doorstep wherever you are. We are also working diligently on preparing the release of beautiful spring teas, coming soon.
We will be monitoring the situation closely and re-open our stores to welcome you back live and in person just as soon as we can.
These are trying, stressful, for many even existential times, for sure. However, perhaps and as our individual situation allows, we can try to find some positive aspects in these times. Slowing down, quality time, introspection, kindness, solidarity, are feelings and actions that come to mind. To say nothing of the fresher air outside as our planet gets a much-needed breather. Perhaps this too will be a positive effect in all of this.
Thank you for your understanding and your loyalty. On the part of the entire P & T team, please stay healthy and in good spirits.
The clouds above us join and separate,
The breeze in the courtyard leaves and returns.
Life is like that, so why not relax?
Who can stop us from celebrating?
